Those puckish Grand Guignolers are conspiring to play and revel one more time before 2010 runs out! Come celebrate with the viaCorpora Fellowship!
Grand Guignolers FINAL
Physical Theatre Workout 2010
WEDNESDAY * DECEMBER 15th
Our final physical theatre workout of the year devilishly delves into the spirit of the ancient Roman holiday, Saturnalia. This pagan holiday/festival was the historical pre-curser of the Feast of Fools and the Christmas season featuring gift giving, revelry, misrule, and the reversal of social roles. Death and rebirth. Fool and trickster. Joyous celebration. Post-workout libations.
To stay for the post-workout festivities, please bring your favorite libation and edible treats to share (please let me know what you are bringing to even out the goods... though I suppose 10 bottles of red wine isn't a BAD thing.)
Spaces for this evening are already filling up. BUY TICKET HERE. $18.
ABOUT MELODRAMA PHYSICAL THEATRE WORKOUTS: Join us for a physically theatrical workout to get you out of your head and into your body. Melodrama is the most expressive of Western theatre forms, the one closest to the theatrical impulse, based in physical gesture, high stakes, big characters, big emotion states, spectacle, the struggle of virtue and evil, and all to music. The workshop is somewhere between Artaud's "athlete of the emotions" and cops & robbers. It's cathartic, powerful and FUN! All levels welcome.
$18/workout. WED., DECEMBER 15th 7:30-10 at ArtWorks Theatre. 6569 Santa Monica Blvd., LA 90038. No parking in lot.
Taught by Debbie McMahon, Director/Creator Grand Guignolers.
